Danny Rose has admitted that he would jump at the chance to be reunited with Brendan Rodgers at Leicester City if the opportunity came along this summer.
Rodgers has done an excellent job at the King Power Stadium since joining the club from Celtic last season. He currently looks set to guide the Foxes to Champions League qualification in his first full season at the club.
Rose worked with the former Liverpool boss during the loan spell he had at Watford as a teenager and the Spurs star admitted that he was left extremely impressed by the Northern Irishman’s ideas during his brief spell at the Hornets.
Speaking to The Lockdown Tactics Podcast (as relayed by Football.London), the left-back said: “When I was contemplating going to Chelsea at Leeds [before joining Spurs the following year], he was Chelsea reserves manager at the time so he would have already known about me because he would have been working with me.
“He had already gone to Watford and there was an interest there. Getting to work with him for two months was brilliant.
“The training sessions were up until that point as an 18 or 19-year-old I had never experienced that before. His ideas in training, it was brilliant and I have always said that he is somebody I would love to play for again.”
When asked if that meant he wanted to move to Leicester in the summer, Rose joked: “Yeah, someone will have to buy [Ben] Chilwell.”
Chilwell has been linked with a move away from Leicester this summer with Spurs reportedly interested in the England international’s services (The Times).

Steve Bruce probably wouldn’t bee too happy with Rose’s come and get me plea to Brendan Rodgers considering he has made it clear that he wants to sign the full-back permanently for Newcastle in the summer. Regardless, Chilwell is unlikely to leave and so I don’t expect the Foxes to make an offer for Rose.
